“A great splurge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

If you are looking for a bit of a splurge Long Beach Lodge is the place. Its unpretentious luxury and incredible meals make for a perfect evening after hiking, surfing, or whale watching. Best of all ~ is the staff. I can't recall meeting more friendly, helpful, professional staff anywhere. Truly a great place to visit.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room at Long Beach Lodge. We did not have an ocean view, but the forest view...

We try and spend sometime every year around our anniversary date at LBL. This year (41st) we were their on the actual date. I had e-mailed Chef Ian and asked if he would prepare a special anniversary dinner for us (Chateaubriand). It had to be a surprise for my wife. Chef Ian agreed and the wheels were set in motion.
First of all the dinner was a surprise to my wife
The dinner that was prepared for us was perfect.
The preparation was perfect. The presentation was outstanding. The wine recommended could not have been improved.
Thanks to Head Chef Ian, Chef Randy, Mike and Shawn for making that night Great.
Looking forward to giving Head Chef Ian a new challenge next year.
Thanks to all of the LBL staff for being so social and caring

We have stayed at LBL before but not during the past few years, due to fears about tsunamis. Seriously. Yearning for the wild west coast & the luxuries of LBL overcame this concern & we're glad we made the journey again. Top notch accommodation & views, friendly efficient staff, delicious food & stunning location can't be beat. We lived to tell the tale.

We were glad to welcome you back. I hope that you will try again now that you have conquered your fears! The hotel is constructed with a whole series of sheer walls to withstand earthquakes and most tsunamis. Unless an earthquake was under the ocean close to the beach, officials are able to provide plenty of warning. We have a plan in place, to evacuate guests, should there ever be a tsunami warning. I am delighted you enjoyed your visit with us.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful staff at Long Beach Lodge. Everyone employee who passes by has a smile and a friendly word for their guests. Front desk and restaurant service are the very best! The genuine hospitality conveyed by the staff is without an ounce of pretension. We enjoyed a surf lesson with the supportive and very congenial Ryland. It was supreme pleasure to play in the surf at Cox Bay, and more supreme pleasure just to walk on that gorgeous expanse of sand. The ocean front room was super clean and the deck is great for watching the action in the Bay. Oh, and the food was excellent as well.
Can't wait to come back!

Thank you for your comments regarding our staff. Guests often tell me that while the beauty of the Lodge and the area are a given, it is the warm and welcoming staff that keeps them returning. There is so much to do in Tofino, I am delighted you enjoyed surfing with Ryland on Cox Bay.
